B i o g r a p h y
 (by MacKenzie Wilson)

Irish singer/songwriter Damien Rice launched his music career in the late '90s with the hard-hitting indie rock outfit Juniper. The group signed to Polygram in 1997 and released two singles, "The World Is Dead" and "Weathermen," which did moderately well on Irish radio, but when it came time to record a full-length album, contractual rules from the label prevented Juniper from doing so, and Rice split. After a brief respite in Europe, Rice returned to Dublin to focus on music once again, scrounging up enough money to record a demo. He sent it to producer/film composer David Arnold (Björk, Nina Persson, Paul Oakenfold), and luckily for him, Arnold loved it and set Rice up in his very own mobile studio to make a record. His first single, "The Blower's Daughter," was an instant Top 20 hit when it appeared in fall 2001. Shared gigs with McAlmont & Butler and folkie Kathryn Williams followed in summer 2002 when Rice released O in the U.K. The album hit the States in 2003, which earned the Irishman a dedicated group of American fans in addition to his European ones, and after satiating all of them with a collection of B-sides in 2005, Rice released his sophomore record, 9. The album featured his long-term collaborator and then-girlfriend Lisa Hannigan on backing vocals, but on the supporting tour, they eventually split. Rice then went silent for six years without any material or shows after supporting Leonard Cohen in Dublin in 2008, but in 2014 he announced a small show at the 25th Anniversary celebrations of Whelan's, a venue in the Irish capital. His third studio album, My Favourite Faded Fantasy, was produced by legendary American producer Rick Rubin, and was released in November 2014.

O

Delicate

We might kiss
When we are alone
When nobody's watching
We might take it home

We might make out
When nobody's there
It's not that we're scared
It's just that it's delicate

So why do you fill my sorrow
With the words you've borrowed
From the only place you've known

And why do you sing Hallelujah
If it means nothing to you
Why do you sing with me at all

We might live
Like never before
When there's nothing to give
Then how can we ask for more
We might make love
In some sacred place
That look on your face
Is delicate

So why do you fill my sorrow
With the words you've borrowed
From the only place you've known
And why do you sing Hallelujah
If it means nothing to you
Why do you sing with me at all

So why do you fill my sorrow
With the words you've borrowed
From the only place you've known

Why do you sing Hallelujah
If it means nothing to you
Why do you sing with me at all


Volcano

Damien Rice :

Don't hold yourself like that
You'll hurt your knees
I kissed your mouth and back
That's all I need
Don't build your world around
Volcanoes melt you down

What I am to you
Is not real
What I am to you you
Do not need
What I am to you
Is not what you mean to me
You give me miles and miles of mountains
And I'll ask for the sea


Lisa Hannigan :

Don't throw yourself like that
In front of me
I kissed your mouth your back
Is that all you need
Don't drag my love around
Volcanoes melt me down

What I am to you
Is not real
What I am to you you
Do not need
What I am to you
Is not what you mean to me
You give me miles and miles of mountains
And I'll ask


Damien Rice :

What I give to you
Is just what i'm going through
This is nothing new
No no just another phase of finding
What I really need
Is what makes me bleed
But like a new disease
Lord she's still too young to treat


Lisa Hannigan & Damien Rice :


What I am to you / Volcanoes melt you down / She's still too young / Is not real
She's still too young / What I am to you / Volcanoes melt you down / She's still too young / You do not need
She's still too young /  What I am to you / Volcanoes melt you down / She's still too young /  Is not real
She's still too young / What I am to you / Volcanoes melt you down / She's still too young / You do not need
She's still too young /  What I am to you / Volcanoes melt you down / She's still too young /  Is not real
She's still too young / What I am to you / Volcanoes melt you down / She's still too young / You do not need

What I am to you / I kissed your mouth your back / She's still too young
What I am to you / I kissed your mouth your back / She's still too young
She's still too young
And what I am to you / I kissed your mouth your back / She's still too young / Is not real
She's still too young / What I am to you / I kissed your mouth your back / She's still too young

You do not need me


The blower's daughter

Damien Rice :
And so it is
Just like you said it would be
Life goes easy on me
Most of the time

And so it is
The shorter story
No love no glory
No hero in her skies

I can't take my eyes off of you
I can't take my eyes off of you
I can't take my eyes off of you
I can't take my eyes off of you
I can't take my eyes off of you
I can't take my eyes

And so it is
Just like you said it should be
We'll both forget the breeze
Most of the time

And so it is
The colder water
The blower's daughter
The pupil in denial

I can't take my eyes off of you
I can't take my eyes off of you
I can't take my eyes off of you
I can't take my eyes off of you
I can't take my eyes off of you
I can't take my eyes


Lisa Hannigan :
Did I say that I loathe you
Did I say that I want to
Leave it all behind


Damien Rice :
I can't take my mind off of you
I can't take my mind off of you
I can't take my mind off of you
I can't take my mind off of you
I can't take my mind off of you
I can't take my mind
My mind, my mind
'Til I find somebody new

Cannonball

There's still a little bit of your taste
In my mouth
There's still a little bit of you laced
With my doubt
It's still a little hard to say
What's going on

There's still a little bit of your ghost
Your witness
There's still a little bit of your face
I haven't kissed
You step a little closer each day
That I can't see what's going on

Stones taught me to fly
Love taught me to lie
Life, it taught me to die
So it's not hard to fall
When you float like a cannonball

There's still a little bit of your song
In my ear
There's still a little bit of your words
I long to hear
You step a little closer to me
So close that I can't see what's going on

Stones taught me to fly
Love, it taught me to lie
Life taught me to die
So it's not hard to fall
When you float like a cannon

Stones taught me to fly
Love taught me to cry
So come on courage
Teach me to be shy
'Cause it's not hard to fall
And I don't wanna scare her
It's not hard to fall
And I don't wanna lose
It's not hard to grow
When you know that you just don't know

Older chests

Damien Rice :
Older chests reveal themselves
Like a crack in a wall
Starting small
And grow in time

We all seem to need the help
Of someone else to mend that shelf
Of too many books
Read me your favourite line

Papa went to other lands
And found someone who understands
The ticking and the western man's need to cry

He came back the other day you know
Some things in life may change
And some things they stay the same

Like time
There's always time
On my mind

So pass me by
I'll be fine
Just give me time

Older gents sit on the fence
With their cap in hand
Looking grand
They watch their city change

Children scream or so it seems
Louder than before
Out of doors
And into stores with bigger names

Mama tried to wash their faces
But these kids they lost their graces
When daddy lost at the races too many times

She broke down the other day you know
Some things in life may change
But some things they stay the same


Lisa Hannigan & Damien Rice :
Like time
There's always time
On my mind

So pass me by
I'll be fine
Just give me time
Time


Lisa Hannigan :
Time, there's always time
On my mind
Pass me by, I'll be fine
Just give me time

Amie

Nothing unusual
Nothing strange
Close to nothing at all
The same old scenario
The same old rain
And there's no explosions here

Then something unusual
Something strange
Comes from nothing at all
I saw a spaceship
Who fly by your window
Did you see it disappear

Amie come sit on my wall
And read me a story of old
Tell it like you still believe
That the end of the century
Brings a change for you and me

Nothing unusual
Nothing's changed
Just a little older that's all
You know when you've found it
There's something I've learned
'Cause you feel it when they take it away

Hey hey hey
Something unusual
Something strange
Comes from nothing at all
But I'm not a miracle
And you're not a saint
Just another soldier
On a road to nowhere

Amie come sit on my wall
And read me a story of old
Tell it like you still believe
That the end of the century
Brings a change for you and me

Amie come sit on my wall
And read me the story of O
Tell it like you still believe
That the end of the century
Brings a change for you and me

Cheers darlin'

Cheers darlin'
Here's to you and your lover boy
Cheers darlin'
I got years to wait around for you
Cheers darlin'
I've got your wedding bells in my ear
Cheers darlin'
You give me three cigarettes to smoke my tears away

And I die when you mention his name
And I lie I should have kissed you
When we were running in the rain

What am I darlin'
A whisper in your ear
A piece of your cake
What am I darlin
The boy you can fear
Or your biggest mistake

Cheers darlin'
Here's to you and your lover man
Cheers darlin'
I'll just hang around and eat from a can
Cheers darlin'
I got a ribbon of green on my guitar
Cheers darlin'
I got a beauty queen
To sit not very far from me

I die
When he comes around to take you home
I'm too shy
I should have kissed you
When we were alone

What am I darlin'
A whisper in your ear
A piece of your cake
What am I darlin'
The boy you can fear
Or your biggest mistake

Oh what am I
Here's to you and your lover
What am I darlin'
I got years to wait around for you

Cold water

Damien Rice :
Cold cold water
Surrounds me now
And all I've got
Is your hand

Lord can you hear me now
Lord can you hear me now
Lord can you hear me now
Or am I lost


Lisa Hannigan :
No one's daughter
Allow me that
And I can't let go of your hand

Lord can you hear me now
Lord can you hear me now
Lord can you hear me now
Or am I lost


Don't you know I love you
And I always have
Hallelujah
Will you come with me


Damien Rice :
Cold cold water
Surrounds me now


Damien Rice & Lisa Hannigan :
And all I've got / Cold, cold water
Is your hand / Surrounds me now
Lord / Can you hear me
Lord / Can you hear me now
Lord / Can you hear me
Or am I lost, or am I lost...


I remember

Lisa Hannigan :
I remember it well
The first time that I saw
Your head ‘round the door
'Cause mine stopped working

I remember it well
There was wet in your hair
I was stood in the stair
And time stopped moving

I want you here tonight
I want you here
'Cause I can't believe what I found
I want you here tonight, I want you here
Nothing is taking me down, down, down

I remember it well
Taxied out of a storm
To watch you perform
And my ships were sailing

I remember it well
I was stood in your line
And your mouth
Your mouth, your mind

I want you here tonight I want you here
'Cause I can't believe what I found
I want you here tonight want you here
Nothing is taking me down, down, down

Except you my love
Except you my love


Damien Rice :
Come all ye lost
Dive into moss
I hope that my sanity covers the cost
To remove the stain of my love
Paper maché

Oh come all ye reborn
Blow off my horn
I'm driving real hard
This is love
This is porn
God would forgive me
But I
I whip myself scorn, scorn

I wanna hear
What you have to say about me
Hear
If you're gonna live without me
I wanna hear what you want
I remember december
And I wanna hear
What you have to say about me
Hear if you're gonna live without me
I wanna hear what you want
What the hell do you want

Eskimo

Damien Rice :
Tiredness fuels
Empty thoughts
I find myself
Disposed
Brightness fills
Empty space
In search of
Inspiration

Harder now
With higher speed
Washing in
On top of me

So I look to my eskimo friend
I look to my eskimo friend
I look to my eskimo friend
When I'm down down down

Rain it wets
Muddy roads
I find myself
Exposed
Tapping does
But irritate
In search of
Destination

Harder now
With higher speed
Washing in
On top of me so

So I look to my eskimo friend
I look to my eskimo friend
I look to my eskimo friend
When I'm down down down


Doreen Curran (in Finnish) :
Kosketa minua (touch me)
Älä käsilläsi (not with your hands)
Vaan niin että tunnen sinut (but the way I can feel you)

Kosketa minua (touch me)
Älä käsilläsi (not with your hands)
Mutta sielussasi (but within your soul)

Minä kaipaan eskimo-ystävääni (I look to my eskimo friend)


Damien Rice :
When I'm down, down, down
When I'm down, down, down
When I'm down, down, down

Prague

I pack my suit in a bag
I'm all dressed up for Prague
I'm all dressed up with you
All dressed up for him too

Prepare myself for a war
Before I even open up my door
Before I even look out
I'm pissing all of my bullets about

I wrap myself in a bag
I'm all wrapped up in Prague
I'm all wrapped up in you
I'm all wrapped up in him too

Prepare myself for a war
And I don't know what i'm doing this for
Trying to let it all go
But how can I when you still don't know

I could wait for you
Like that hole in your boot
Waiting to be fixed
I could wait for you
But what good would that do
But to leave me pricked

Cheers darlin'
Here's to you and your lover
Darling
I got years

Pack my suit in a bag
All dressed up for Prague
Pack my suit in a bag
All dressed up for
All dressed up for
All dressed up for

Silent night

Lisa Hannigan :

Silent night, broken night
All is fallen when you take your flight
I found some hate for you just for show
You found some love for me thinking I'd go
Don't keep me from crying to sleep
Sleep in heavenly peace

Silent night, moonlit night
Nothing's changed, nothing is right
I should be stronger than weeping alone
You should be weaker than sending me home
I can't stop you fighting to sleep
Sleep in heavely peace

The Animals Were Gone

Woke up and for the first time
The animals were gone
It's left this house empty now
Not sure if I belong

Yesterday you asked me
To write you a pleasant song
I'll do my best now
But you've been gone for so long

The window's open now
And the winter settles in
We'll call it Christmas
When the adverts begin

I love your depression
And I love your double chin
I love most everything
You bring to this offering

Oh I know that I've left you
In places of despair
Oh I know that I love you
So please throw down your hair

At night I trip without you
And hope I don't wake up
'Cause waking up without you
Is like drinking from an empty cup

Woke up and for the first time
The animals were gone
Our clocks are ticking now
So before our time is gone
We could get a house
And some boxers and on the lawn
We can make babies and accidental songs

I know I've been a liar
And I know I've been a fool
I hope we didn't break it
But I'm glad we broke the rules
My cave is deep now
Yet your light is shinning through
I cover my eyes
Still all I see is you

Oh I know I've left you
In places of despair
Oh I know that I love you
So please throw down your hair

At night I trip without you
And hope I don't wake up
'Cause waking up without you
Is like drinking from an empty cup

Elephant

( a.k.a The Blower's Daughter Part Two )

This has got to die
I said this has got to stop
This has got to lie down
With someone else on top

You can keep me pinned
'Cause it's easier to tease
But you can't paint an elephant
Quite as good as she

And she may cry
Like a baby
And she may drive me crazy
Cause I am lately, lonely

So why do you have to lie
I take it I'm your crutch
The pillow in your pillowcase
Is easier to touch

And when you think you've sinned
Do you fall upon your knees
Or do you sit within your picture
Do you still forget the breeze

And she may rise
If I sing you down
And she may wisely
Cling to the ground
'Cause I am lately, horny
So why would she take me, thorny

What's the point of this song
Or even singing
If you've already gone
Why am I clinging
Well I could throw her out
And I could live without
And I could do it all for you
I could be true and
Tell me if you want me to lie

'Cause this has got to die
I said this has got to stop
This has got to lie down, down
With someone else on top

You can both keep me pinned
'Cause It's easier to tease
But you can't make me happy
Quite as good as me
Well you know that's a lie

Rootless Tree

What I want from you is empty your head
But they say be true, don't stain your bed
We do what we need to be free
And it leans on me like a rootless tree

What I want from us is empty our minds
But we fake a fuss and fracture the times
We go blind when we've needed to see
And this leans on me, like a rootless

So fuck you, fuck you, fuck you
And all we've been through
I said leave it, leave it, leave it
It's nothing to you
And if you hate me, hate me, hate me
Then hate me so good
That you can let me out, let me out, let me out
Of this hell when you're around
Let me out, let me out, let me out
Hell when you're around
Let me out, let me out, let me out

What I want from this
Is learn to let go
No not of you
Of all that's been told
Killers reinvent and believe
And this leans on me, like a rootless

So fuck you, fuck you, fuck you
And all we've been through
I said leave it, leave it, leave it
It's nothing to you
And if you hate me, hate me, hate me
Then hate me so good
That you can let me out, let me out, let me out
Of this hell when you're around
Let me out, let me out, let me out
It's hell when you're around

Let me out, let me out, let me out
Hell when you're around
Let me out, let me out, let me out
Hell when you're around
Let me out, let me out, let me out, let me out
Let me out, let me out, let me out, let me out
Let me out, let me out, let me out, let me out
Let me out, let me out, let me out

Fuck you, fuck you, fuck you
And all we've been through
I said leave it, leave it, leave it
It's nothing to you
And if you hate me, hate me, hate me
Then hate me so good
That you can let me out, let me out, let me out...
Hell when you're around...
Let me out, let me out, let me out, let me out...

Dogs

She lives with an orange tree
The girl that does yoga
She picks the dead ones from the ground
When we come over
And she gives, I get
Without giving anything to me
Like a morning sun
Like a morning
Like a morning sun
Like a good, good morning sun

The girl that does yoga
When we come over
The girl that does yoga

He lives in a little house
On the side of a little hill
Picks the litter from the ground
Litter little brother spills
He gives, I get
Without giving anything to me
And the dogs they run
And the dogs they
And the dogs they run
In the good, good morning sun

The side of a little hill
Litter little brother spills
The side of a little hill

Oh and she's always dressed in white
She's like an angel
Man she burns my eyes
Oh when she turns
She pulls a smile
We drive her round
Man she drives us wild
Oh and she moves like a little girl
I become a child, man
She moves my world
And she gets splashed in paint
And turns away
And leaves me standing

She lives with an orange tree
The girl that does yoga
Got a wolf to keep her warm
When he comes over

And she gives, He gets
Without giving anything to see
And the day it ends
And the day it
And the day it ends
And there's no need for me

With a girl that does yoga
When we come over
With a girl that does yoga

Coconut Skins

You can hold her hand
And show her how you cry
Explain to her your weakness
So she understands
And then roll over and die

You can brave decisions
Before you crumble up inside
Spend your time asking
Everyone else's permission
Then run away and hide

You can sit on chimneys
Put some fire up your ass
No need to know
What you're doing or waiting for
But if anyone should ask

Tell them I've been licking coconut skins
And we've been hanging out
Tell them God just dropped by to forgive our sins
And relieve us our doubt

You can hold her eggs
But your basket has a hole
You can lie between her legs
And go lookin' for
Tell her you're searching for her soul

Or you can wait for ages
Watch your compost turn to coal
But time is contagious
Everybody's getting old

So you can sit on chimneys
Put some fire up your ass
No need to know
What you're doing or looking for
But if anyone should ask

Tell them I've been cooking coconut skins
And we've been hanging out
Tell them God just dropped by to forgive our sins
And relieve us our doubt

For fishin', fishin', fishin'
Fishin', fishin', fishin', yeah

Yeah, yeah, yeah...

Grey Room

Well I've been here before
Sat on the floor
In a grey grey room
Where I stay in all day
I don't eat, but I play
With this grey grey food
Désolé, If someone is prayin'
Then I might break out
Désolé, even if I scream
I can't scream that loud
I'm all alone again
Crawling back home again
Stuck by the phone again

Well I've been here before
Sat on a floor
In a grey grey mood
Where I stay up all night
And all that I write
Is a grey grey tune
So pray for me child
Just for a while
And I might break out yeah
Pray for me child
Even a smile
Would do for now
Cause I'm all alone again
Crawling back home again
Stuck by the phone again

Have I still got you to be my open door
Have I still got you to be my sandy shore
Have I still got you to cross my bridge in this storm
Have I still got you to keep me warm

If I squeeze my grape
Then I drink my wine yeah
'Cause if I squeeze my grape
Then I drink my wine yeah
Oh 'cause nothing is lost
It's just frozen in frost
And it's opening time
And there's no-one in line

But I've still got me
To be your open door
And I've still got me
To be your sandy shore
I've still got me
To cross your bridge in this storm
And I've still got me to keep me warm

Warmer than warm yeah
Warmer than warm yeah
Warmer than warm yeah
Warmer than warm yeah

Accidental Babies

I held you like a lover
Happy hands
And your elbow in the appropriate place
And we ignored our others' happy plans
For that delicate look upon your face
Our bodies moved and hardened
Hurting parts of your garden
With no room for a pardon
In a place where no one knows what we have done

Do you come
Together ever with him
And is he dark enough
Enough to see your light
Do you brush your teeth before you kiss
Do you miss my smell
Is he bold enough to take you on
Do you feel like you belong
And does he drive you wild
Or just mildly free
What about me

You held me like a lover
Sweaty hands
And my foot in the appropriate place
We used cushions to cover
Happy glands
And the mild issue of our disgrace
Our minds pressed and guarded
While our flesh disregarded
The lack of space for the light-hearted
In the boom that beats our drum

And I know I make you cry
I know sometimes you wanna die
But do you really feel alive without me
If so, be free
If not, leave him for me
Before one of us has accidental babies
For we are in love

Do you come
Together ever with him
Is he dark enough
Enough to see your light
Do you brush your teeth before you kiss
Do you miss my smell
And is he bold enough to take you on
Do you feel like you belong
And does he drive you wild
Or just mildly free

What about me
What about me

Sleep don't weep

Sleep, don't weep
My sweet love
Your face, it's all wet
And your day was rough
So do what you must do
To find yourself
Wear another's shoe
Or paint my shelves
There's times that I was broke
And you stood strong
I think I found a place
Where I

Sleep, don't weep
My sweet love
Your face, it's all wet
‘Cause our days were rough
So do what you must do
To fill that hole
Wear another's shoe
To comfort the sole
There's times that I was broke
And you stood strong
I think I found a place
Where I feel I will

Sleep, don't weep
My sweet love
My face, it's all wet
‘Cause my day was rough
So do what you must do
To find yourself
Wear another's shoe
Paint my shelves
There's times that I was broke
And you stood strong
I hope I find a place
Where I feel I…belong

Sleep, don't weep
My sweet love
My face it's all wet
'Cause my day was rough

Don't weep, my sweet love
My face, is all wet
'Cause my days are rough

The Rat Within The Grain

This would not have happened if I hadn't missed my plane
I would've been there when they told you I'm the rat within the grain
Within this big misunderstanding now, I'm being misunderstood
I'm thinking someone's trying to fuck with me and set fire to my wood

Well I wouldn't want you to want to be wanted by me
I wouldn't want you to worry you'd be drowned within my sea
I only wanted to be wonderful, and wonderful is true
In truth, I only really wanted to be wanted by you

It's a stupid situation now where everything goes wrong
If you can't tell if I am lying, then you do not belong
In my bed, go rest your head upon the bones of a bigger man
And he can cover you with rockwool and you can close up like a clam

'cause I wouldn't want you to want to be wanted by me
I wouldn't want you to worry you'd be drowned within my sea
I only wanted to be wonderful, and wonderful is true
In truth, I only really wanted to be wanted by you

So go play with your piano and write a mediocre song
About this shell of mediocrity
And pretend there's nothing wrong
I never thought you were a chicken shit
I never thought of you at all
Until you asked me to be part of it
And now you're showing me a wall

I wouldn't want you to want to be wanted by me
I wouldn't want you to worry you'd be drowned within my sea
I only wanted to be wonderful and wonderful is true
In truth, I only really wanted to be wanted by you

In truth, I only really wanted to be wanted by you
In truth, I only really wanted to be wanted by you

 

My Favourite Faded Fantasy

My Favourite Faded Fantasy

You could be my favourite taste to touch my tongue
I know someone who could serve me love but it wouldn't fill me up
You could have my favourite face and favourite name
I know someone who could play the part but it wouldn't be the same

No, it wouldn't be the same
No, it wouldn't be the same
No, it wouldn't be the same
As with you

You could be my favourite place I've ever been
I got lost in your willingness to dream within the dream
You could be my favourite faded fantasy
I have hung my happiness upon what it all could be

Oh, what it all could be
What it all, what it all could be
What it all, what it all could be
With you

What it all, what it all could be
What it all, what it all could be
What it all, what it all could be
With you

You could hold the secrets that save me from myself
I could love you more than love could, all the way from hell
You could be my poison, my cross, my razor blade
I could love you more than life if I wasn't so afraid
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Of what it all could be
What it all, what it all could be
What it all, what it all could be
With you

What it all, what it all could be
What it all, what it all could be
What it all, what it all could be
With you

Love dissolved the bloom
Always watch it
Never let someone go or they
I ain't never loved like you

'Cause I've never loved
I have never loved
I've never loved, no not like you
I have never loved
I have never loved

I have never loved
I have never loved
I have never loved
I have never loved

It Takes A Lot To Know A Man

It takes a lot to know a man
It takes a lot to understand
The warrior, the sage
The little boy enraged

It takes a lot to know a woman
A lot to understand what's humming
The honey bee, the sting
The little girl with wings

It takes a lot to give
To ask for help, to be yourself
To know and love what you live with

It takes a lot to breathe
To touch, to feel
The slow reveal
Of what another body needs

It takes a lot to know a man
A lot to know to understand
The father and the son
The hunter and the gun

It takes a lot know a woman
A lot to comprehend what's coming
The mother and the child
The muse and the beguiled

It takes a lot to give
To ask for help, to be yourself
To know and love what you live with
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
It takes a lot to breathe
To touch, to feel
The slow reveal
Of what another body needs

It takes a lot to give
To ask for help, to be yourself
To know and love what you live with

It takes a lot to breathe
To touch, to feel
The slow reveal
Of what another body needs

It takes a lot to live
To ask for help, to be yourself
To know and love what you live with

It takes a lot to breathe
To touch, to feel
The slow reveal
Of what another body needs

What are you so afraid to lose
What is it you're thinking that will happen if you do
(so afraid to lose)

What are you so afraid to lose
What is it you're thinking that will happen if you do
What is it you carry on your back
What is it you notice
When you know you can't relax
You wrote me to tell me you're nervous and you're sorry
Crying like a baby saying “this thing is killing me

(you keep digging, you keep digging)

It takes a lot to know a man

The Greatest Bastard

I made you laugh, I made you cry
I made you open up your eyes, didn't I
I helped you open out your wings
Your legs and many other things, didn't I

Am I the greatest bastard that you know
The only one who let you go
Or the one you hurt so much you cannot bare
We were good when we were good
When we were not misunderstood

You helped me love, you helped me live,
You helped me learn how to forgive, didn't you
I wish that I could say the same
But when you left, you left the blame, didn't you

Am I the greatest bastard that you met
The only one you can't forget
Am I the one your truth's been waiting for
Or am I just dreaming once again
Some dreams are better when they end

Some make it, mistake it
Some force and some will fake it
I never meant to let you down
Some ret it, forget it
Some ruin and some regret it
I never meant to let you down

We learned to wag and tuck our tails
We learned to win and then to fail, didn't we
We learned that lovers love to sing
And that losers love to cling, didn't we

Am I the greatest bastard that you know
When will we learn to let this go
We fought so much we've broken all the charm
But letting go is not the same as pushing someone else away
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
So please don't let on, you don't know me
Please don't let on, I'm not here
Please don't let on, you don't love me
'Cause I know you do, I know

That some make it, mistake it
Some force and some will fake it
But I never meant to let you down
Some fret it, forget it
Some ruin and some regret it
But I never meant to let you down
I never meant to let you
I never meant to let you down
I never meant

I Don't Want To Change You

Wherever you are
Well, know that I adore you
No matter how far
Well, I can go before you

And if ever you need someone
Well, not that you need helping
But if ever you want someone
I know that I am willing

Oh and I don't want to change you
I don't want to change you
I don't want to change your mind
I just came across a manger
Out among the danger
Somewhere in a stranger's eye

Wherever you go
Well, I can always follow
I can feed this real slow
If it's a lot to swallow

And if you just want to be alone
Well, I can wait without waiting
And if you want me to let this go
Well, I am more than willing

Oh 'cause I don't want to change you
I don't want to change you
I don't want to change your mind
I just came across a manger
Out among the danger
Somewhere in a stranger's eye
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Oh and I don't want to change you
I don't want to change you
I don't want to change your mind
I just came across a manger
Out among the danger
Somewhere in a stranger's eye

I'd never been with anyone
In the way I've been with you
But if love is not for fun
Then it's doomed, 'cause

Water races
Water races down
The waterfall

The water races
Water races down
The waterfall

And I don't want to change you
I don't want to change you
I don't want to change your mind
I just came across a manger
Where there is no danger
Where love has eyes, it is not blind

Colour Me In

I tried to repress it
Then I carried its crown
I reached out to undress it
And love let me down
Love let me down

So I tried to erase it
But the ink bled right through
Almost drove myself crazy
When these words led to you
And all these useless dreams of living alone
Like a dogless bone

So come let me love you
Come let me love you
And then
Colour me in

Well I tried to control it and cover it up
I reached out to console it
It was never enough
Never enough

So I tried to forget it
That was all part of the show
Told myself I'd regret it
But what do I know
About all these useless dreams of living alone
Like a dogless bone
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
So come let me love you
Come let me love you
And then
Colour me in

Come let me love you
Come let me take this through the end
Of all these useless dreams of living
All these useless dreams
Of all these useless dreams of living
All these old noes

Come let me love you
Come let me love you
Come let me love you
Come let me in

The Box

Don't give me
Something to hold in my hand
Something else to believe in
'Cause I'm over it
And your reasons
For wanting to stay
Your reasons
For wanting to change
My reasons
For everything are dull to you

I have tried but I don't fit
Into this box I'm living with
Well I could go wild
But you might lock me up

I have tried but I don't fit
Into this box you call a gift
When I could be wild and free
But God forbid then you might envy me
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
So don't give me
Love with an old book of rules
That kind of love's just for fools
And I'm over it
And my reasons
For walking away
My reasons
For wanting to change
My reasons
For everything are lost with you

I have tried but I don't fit
Into this box I'm living with
Well I could go wild
But you might lock me up

I have tried but I don't fit
Into this box you call a gift
When I could be wild and free
But God forbid, then you might envy me

I have tried
Into this box you call
Well I could go wild
But you might lock me up

I have tried but I
Into this box you call a gift
When I could be wild and free
But God forbid, then you might envy me

I could be wild and free
But God forbid, then you might

Trusty and True

We've wanted to be
Trusty and true
But feathers fell from our wings

And we've wanted to be
Worthy of you
But weather rained on our dreams

And we can't take back
What is done, what is past
So, fellas, lay down your fears

'Cause we can't take back
What is done, what is past
So let us start from here

'Cause we never wanted to be lusty or lewd
Nor tethered to prudish strings
We never wanted to be jealously tuned
Nor withered into ugly things
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
But we can't take back
What is done, what is past
So, fellas, lay down your spears

'Cause we can't take back
What is done, what is past
So let us start from here

And if all that you are
Is not all you desire
Then, come

Come, come alone
Come with fear
Come with love
Come however you are

Just come
Come alone
Come with friends
Come with foes
Come however you are

Just come
Come alone
Come with me
Then let go
Come however you are

Just come
Come alone
Come so carefully closed
Come however you are
Just come

Come, come along
Come with sorrows and songs
Come however you are

Just come
Come along
Come, let yourself be wrong
Come however you are
Just come

Long Long Way

Long long way to the top
Long way down if you fall
It's a long way back if you get lost

Long way out to the end
Long way to go to lose your friends
It's a long way to haul
All the traps you've trawled
When you could just stop and let go
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
And you say not now, maybe later
But not now, maybe later

Not now
(you're only in your way)
Maybe later

But not now
(you're only in your way)
Maybe later

Not now
(you're only in your way)
Maybe later

But not now
(you're only in your way)
Maybe later

But not now
(you're only in your way)
Maybe
Wait

'Cause love is tough
When enough is not enough
It's not enough
Not enough

Not enough, not enough, not enough
Not enough, not enough, not enough
Not enough, not enough, not enough
Not enough, not enough, not enough
Not enough, not enough

Not enough, not enough

Águas de Março

(Tom Jobim Cover)

É pau, é pedra, é o fim do caminho, é um resto de toco, é um pouco sozinho
É um caco de vidro, é a vida, é o sol, é a noite, é a morte, é um laço, é o anzol
É peroba do campo, é o nó da madeira, caingá, candeia, é o Matita Pereira
É madeira de vento, tombo da ribanceira, é o mistério profundo, é o queira ou nao queira
É o vento ventando, é o fim da ladeira, é a viga, é o vão, festa da cumeeira
É a chuva chovendo, é conversa ribeira das águas de março, é o fim da canseira
É o pé, é o chão, é a marcha estradeira, passarinho na mão, pedra de atiradeira
É uma ave no céu, é uma ave no chão, é um regato, é uma fonte, é um pedaço de pão
É o fundo do poço, é o fim do caminho no rosto o desgosto, é um pouco sozinho
É um estrepe, é um prego, é uma ponta, é um ponto, é um pingo pingando, é uma conta, é um conto
É um peixe, é um gesto, é uma prata brilhando, é a luz da manhã,é o tijolo chegando
É a lenha, é o dia, é o fim da picada, é a garrafa de cana, o estilhaço na estrada
É o projeto da casa, é o corpo na cama, é o carro enguiçado, é a lama, é a lama
É um passo, é uma ponte, é um sapo, é uma rã, é um resto de mato na luz da manhã
São as águas de março fechando o verão, é a promessa de vida no teu coração

É uma cobra, é um pau, é João, é José, é um espinho na mão, é um corte no pé
São as águas de março fechando o verão, é a promessa de vida no teu coração

Pau, pedra, fim do caminho, resto de toco, um pouco sozinho
Caco de vidro, vida, sol, noite, morte, laço, anzol
É um passo, é uma ponte, é um sapo, é uma rã, é um belo horizonte, é uma festa terçã
São as águas de março fechando o verão, é a promessa de vida no teu coração

São as águas de março fechando o verão, é a promessa de vida no teu coração

*** Thanx a lot to Jose Luiz for this one ***

All along the watchtower

( Cover / Bob Dylan )

There must be some kind of way out of here
Said the joker to the thief
There's too much confusion
I can't get no relief
Business men they
They drink my wine
Plowmen dig my earth
No one will level on the line
Nobody of it is worth

All along, all along...

Babe I'm gonna leave you

( Led Zeppelin Cover / Live )

Babe, baby, baby, I'm gonna leave you
I ain't jokin' woman, I got to ramble
Leave you when the summer comes
Leave you when the summer comes along

Babe, babe, babe, babe....

Leave you when the summer comes
I'm gonna leave you when the summer comes along

I'm gonna leave you, I'm gonna leave you

Babylon

( Live with David Gray at Earth concert, London at Wembley Stadium )

Friday night I'm
going nowhere
All the lights are changing green to red
Turning over TV stations
Situations running through my head
Well looking back through time
You know it's clear that I've been blind
I've been a fool
To ever open up my heart
To all that jealousy, that bitterness, that ridicule

Saturday I'm running wild
And all the lights are changing red to green
Moving through the crowd I'm pushing
Chemicals all rushing through my bloodstream
Only wish that you were here
You know I'm seeing it so clear
I've been afraid
To tell you how I really feel
Admit to some of those bad mistakes I've made

If you want it
Come and get it
Crying out loud
The love that I was
Giving you was
Never in doubt
Let go your heart
Let go your head
And feel it now

Babylon, Babylon

Sunday all the lights of London
Shining, Sky is fading red to blue
I'm kicking through the Autumn leaves
And wondering where it is you might be going to
Turning back for home
You know I'm feeling so alone
I can't believe
Climbing on the stair
I turn around to see you smiling there
In front of me

If you want it
Come and get it
Crying out loud
The love that I was
Giving you was
Never in doubt
And feel it now
Let go your heart
Let go your head
And feel it now
Let go your heart
Let go your head
And feel it now
Let go your heart
Let go your head
And feel it now
Let go your heart
Let go your head
And feel it now

Babylon, Babylon, Babylon

Baby Sister

Don't wake up, baby sister, keep dreaming
Did he fill your cup
Baby sister, keep drinking
Or he'll hit you
He'll bleach your eyes
So be a good girl
Just for the night
And run, run...

Don't get stuck, baby sister
Leave this land
And read your books
Baby sister, wash your hands
Or he'll beat you
He'll bleach your eyes
So be a good girl
Just for the night
And run, run, run, run, run...
Run, baby sister (Ave Maria...)
Run, baby sister

Beast and Beauty

( Live )

Once lived the beast and beauty,
Painter of paints, she was a cutie,
Canvas was hers, passion was found...
And the rain came down,
The rain came down...

There once lived the beast and beauty,
In a forest of trees where the fruit was so fruity...
Picked one and ate to feed his doubt
So she put him out, she put him out...

Oh no, my love and lonely friend
How slow we gonna take this bend,
It's a long road with a cold and stony end,
Where do you go to pretend?

There once lived a beast and beauty,

How slow we gonna take this bend,

Oh no, my love and lonely friend
How slow we gonna take this bend,

Be my husband

( Live / Nina Simone Cover )

Be my husband, I'll be your wife
Be my husband, I'll be your wife
Be my husband, I'll be your wife
Outside you there is no place to go

If you want me to I'll cook and sew
If you want me to I'll cook and sew
If you want me to I'll cook and sew
Outside you there is no place to go

Oh daddy now now love me good
Oh daddy now now love me good
Oh daddy now now love me good
Oh daddy now now love me good

Please don't treat me so doggone mean
Please don't treat me so doggone mean
Please don't treat me so doggone mean
Youre the meanest man I ever seen

Oh daddy now now love me good
Oh daddy now now love me good
Oh daddy now now love me good
Oh daddy now now love me good

Stick to the promise man, that you made me
Stick to the promise man, that you made me
Stick to the promise man, that you made me
That you'll stay away from Rosalie

Oh daddy now now love me good
Oh daddy now now love me good
Oh daddy now now love me good
Oh daddy now now love me good

Boring Afternoon

She would spend another afternoon drinking wine
Sitting on your door, just wasting time
Talking about the way it used to be
So much better

Or another night baby in your arms
Still another one could do no harm
Reminds me of how it used to feel
So much wetter

I never know what's right for her
There's always something I never notice wrong

To giving it up before you get down
You gotta be in before you get out
You're gonna be gone, before you get found
In another boring...

Spin another bottle in a low-lit room
Nothing tastes better than young flowers in bloom
I know that's how it used to be
We were so much younger

Over that now and I can count the years
Everybody now is just counting tears
And plastic bills and their protective pills
And I just took my time

I never know what's right for her
There's always something I never notice wrong

Giving it up before you get down
You gotta be in before you get out
You're gonna be gone before you get found
In another boring afternoon

Giving it up before you get down
You gotta be in before you get out, get out, get out, get out...

Giving it up before you get down
You gotta be in before you get out
You're gonna be gone before you get found
In another boring afternoon

Giving it up before you get down
You gotta be in before you get out, get out, get out, get out...

Giving it up before you get down
You gotta be in before you get out
You're gonna be gone
Before you get found in another boring afternoon

Giving it up before you get down
You gotta be in before you get out
You're gonna be gone before you get found
In another boring...

Giving it up for,
Giving it up for
Giving it up for
Another boring afternoon

Bottom Shelf

I take myself from the bottom shelf
And I reel my troubles in
And I put them up on a higher hill
To a place I've never been.

And I'll wait for you if you want me to,
Am I just wasting my time?
And I'll wait for you if you ask me to,
Am I just losing my mind?

And im always hanging on,
And im always closing doors,
And im always saying no,
No, when I really really want it all,
When I really really want it all
When I really really want it all
When I really really want you.

And I'll take myself from the bottom shelf
And im on the street again
But it's the newer town, and the rain come down,
In a place I've never been.

And I play for you if you ask me to,
Am I just wasting my time?
Yeah I play for you if you want me to,
Am I just losing my mind?

Cause im always hanging on,
And im always closing doors.
And im always saying no,
No, when I really really want it all
When I really really want it all
When I really really want it all
When I really really want it all
When I really really want you.

When I really really want it all
I really really want
Yeah I really really want it all
When I really really wanted you.

I take myself from the bottom shelf
And I reel my troubles in.
And I put them up on a higher hill,
To a place I've never been.

And I'll play for you if you ask me to,
Am I just wasting my time?
Yeah I'll play for you if you want me to,
Am I just losing my mind?

Am I just losing my mind?
Am I just losing my mind?
Am I just losing my mind?
Am I just losing my mind?

Camarillas

You're not on my mind
You know that's a lie
But I have been overthinking again
But not ‘cause of you
You know that's not true
Nothing I'm saying makes any sense
I'm not losing faith
I just don't relate
Don't do so well with waiting around
So just let me know
Do I hold or let go?
Please do something
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
‘Cause all I hear are your camarillas
Compliment the nonsense you're knitting
Colour in the fillers
Rub you on with rubber love

But they don't care
That's not fair
I am aware
I've punched up your private parties and more
Here I go again
Dissing your friends
You've done the same
But that's in the past
There's no one to ask
How long this will last
I've shaved the silence
But it keeps growing back
So let it grow a beard
And everyone cheers
‘Cause freedom is wild
And it means … but

Your camarillas
Compliment the nonsense you're knitting
And colour in the fillers
Rub you on with rubber love

I don't mean to be rude
I'm not in a mood
And even if I was
Surely that's only human
Better let it out
A quick scream and shout
Maybe that's just how we're different

Childish

I'm so childish
A little bit wildish
With my rumdiddlyumdiddlyumdiddly
I'm so deep

Well I'm so garish
A little unfairish
The way I pick you up
And drop you in a heap

I'm so unfaithful
In fact I'm a plateful
I won't kiss her
But I'll stare her up all night

I'm a stormy little singer
An unstable little swinger
If you're coming
Come prepared for a fight

Well I'm so childish
A little bit wildish
With my rumdiddlyumdiddlyumdiddly
I'm so deep

Well I'm so uncaring
Do far too much swearing
And if you read through my behaviour
You'll find I'm a creep

I'll play a stormer
Yet in the corner
I'll be grumpy on my own
Like I don't care

I'm a stormy little singer
An unstable little swinger
With a big rip
In the arsehole of my flares

Well I'm so childish
A little bit wildish
With my rumdiddlyumdiddlyumdiddly
I'm so mad

I'm so truthful
A little bit bruteful
But in sooth I know not
Why I am so sad

I try my bestest
Well as far the restest
Well it's just stuff that comes out wrong
And gets misunderstood

I'm a dandy little dreamer
A doctored misdemeanour
A didactic destiny schemer
Bare with me if you would

Closer

( Live )

I want you closer
I want you closer
I want you in my dirty hands
I want to touch you in your body, gonna let your baby, down
I want you every night I please
Want you to bend, want you to tease
Want you to take me down on your knees
Wanna let your baby down

And you can take me higher in your zone
If you tell me your name, I'll take you home
And you can take my pain, I've got loads
I wanna let your baby down.

(Lisa's verse)
I want you to take me closer
I want you to make me suffer
I want you to wear me out, no I'll let you down (??)
I'll let your baby down

And you can take me out, all night long
And you can turn my stones into gold
If you tell me your real name, I'll take you home
I wanna let your baby down

Yeah, you can take me out, all night long
And you can take my pain, cos I've got loads
If you tell me your real name, I'll take you home
I wanna let your baby down

I want you closer
I want you in my dirty hands (you're gonna let your baby down)
Want you to let me in your body (you're gonna let your baby down)
I want you every night I please
Want you to bend, want you to tease
Want you to take me down on your knees

You can take me out, all night long
And you can turn my stones, into gold
And if you tell me your real name, I'll take you home
I wanna let your baby...

I wanna let you
Make me out, all night long
And you can turn my pain into gold
Yeah, if you tell me your real name, I'll take you home
I wanna let your baby...
I wanna let your baby...
I wanna let your baby...
I wanna let your baby...

Come Together

( The Beatles cover / Live with Vyvienne Long )

Here come old flattop, he come grooving up slowly
He got joo-joo eyeball, he one holy roller
He got hair down to his knee
Got to be a joker, he just do what he please

He wear no shoeshine, he got toe-jam football
He got monkey finger, he shoot coca-cola
He say "I know you, you know me"
One thing I can tell you is you got to be free
Come together right now over me

He bag production, he got walrus gumboot
He got Ono sideboard, he one spinal cracker
He got feet down below his knee
Hold you in his armchair, you can feel his disease
Come together right now over me

He roller-coaster, he got early warning
He got muddy water, he one mojo filter
He say "One and one and one is three"
Got to be good-looking 'cause he's so hard to see
Come together right now over me

Come together, yeah
Come together, yeah
Come together, yeah
Come together

*** Thanx a lot to José for this one ***

Creep

(Radiohead Cover)

When you were here before
Couldn't look you in the eye
You're just like an angel
Your skin makes me cry
You float like a feather
In a beautiful world
I wish I was special
You're so very special

But I'm a creep
I'm a weirdo
What the hell am I doing here?
I don't belong here

I don't care if it hurts
I want to have control
I want a perfect body
I want a perfect soul
I want you to notice when I'm not around
You're so very special
I wish I was special

But I'm a creep
I'm a weirdo
What the hell I'm doing here?
I don't belong here

She's running out
She's running out
Run, run, run
She runs

Whatever makes you happy
Whatever you want
You're so very special
I wish I was special

But I'm a creep
I'm a weirdo
What the hell am I doing here?
I don't belong here
I don't belong here

*** Thanx a lot to José for this one ***

Desafinado

( Tom Jobim Cover )

Se você disser que eu desafino amor
Saiba que isto em mim provoca imensa dor
Só privilegiados tem o ouvido igual ao seu
Eu possuo apenas o que Deus me deu

Se você insiste em classificar
Meu comportamento de anti-musical
Eu mesmo mentindo devo argumentar
Que isto é bossa nova, isto é muito natural
O que você não sabe nem sequer pressente
É que os desafinados também tem um coração

Fotografei você na minha Rolley-Flex
Revelou-se a sua enorme ingratidão
Só não poderá falar assim do meu amor (assim do meu amor)
E ele é o maior que você pode encontrar
Você com a sua música esqueceu o principal
Que no peito dos desafinados
No fundo do peito
Bate calado, que no peito dos desafinados
Também bate um coração

O que você não sabe nem sequer pressente
É que os desafinados também tem um coração

Fotografei você na minha Rolley-Flex
Revelou-se a sua enorme ingratidão
Só não poderá falar assim do meu amor (assim do meu amor)
E ele é o maior que você pode encontrar
Você com a sua música esqueceu o principal
Que no peito dos desafinados
No fundo do peito
Bate calado, que no peito dos desafinados
Também bate um coração

*** Thanx a lot to Jose Luiz for this one ***

Don't Explain

( Written by Billie Holiday / Arthur Herzog Jr - Performed with Herbie Hancock - 2005 )

Hush now, don't explain
There ain't nothing to gain
Well I'm glad that you're back
But don't explain

Quiet baby, don't explain
You know there ain't nothing to gain
Skip that lipstick
Don't explain

You know that I love you
And what love endures
All my thoughts are of you
I am so completely yours

Don't wanna hear nobody chatter
'Cause I know you cheat
Right or wrong, it don't matter
When you're with me sweet

Hush now, don't explain
You are my joy
And you're my pain
My life is your love
So don't explain

You know that I love you
And what love endures
All my thoughts are of you
I am so completely yours

Don't wanna hear folks chatter
'Cause I know you cheat
Right or wrong, don't matter
When I'm with you sweet

Hush now, don't explain
No, you're my joy and you're my pain
My life is yours love
Don't explain

Down

Break it all apart
You're naked: frozen
Did you ever want to work with me
Did you ever let your baby down, my back
You're shaking though relaxed
Did you feel the drops of rain?
Tell me cause I need to play you

Down, I'm sure there's something here
Maybe my anger
Down, it's over to you my dear
The fuckers will take you
Down, the frozen arrow
The fuckers will take you
Down, the suckers beg for skin
The fuckers will taint you
Down, where the water's shallow
Then they'll watch you drown
And you'll blame your sleep

Your fate: stolen, you're naked: open
Did you ever want to wed me?
Is it why you let your baby down
'Cause I'm back
Shaking but you're relaxed
Did you feel the drops of pain
Tell me 'cause I need to play you
Down, I'm sure there's something there
Maybe my anger
Down, it's over to you my dear
The fuckers will take you
Down, the frozen arrow
The fuckers will take you
Down, the suckers beg for skin
The fuckers will taint you
Down, where the water's shallow
Then they'll watch you drown
And you'll blame your...

Down, the frozen arrow
Down, the suckers beg for skin
Down, where the water's shallow
Down, and you'll blame your...

Down to the river to pray

I went down to the river to pray
Studyin' about that good ol' way
And who shall wear the starry crown?
Good Lord, show me the way

Oh sisters, let's go down
Let's go down, come on down

And who shall wear the robe & crown?
Good Lord, show me the way

Oh brothers, let's go down
Come on down, don't you wanna come down?
Come on, brothers, let's go down
Down in the river to pray

Studyin' about that good ol' way
And who shall wear the starry crown?
Good Lord, show me the way

Oh fathers, let's go down

I went down in the river to pray
Studin' about that good ol' way
And who shall wear the starry crown?
Good Lord, show me the way

Oh sinners, let's go down
Let's go down, come on down
Oh sinners, let's go down
Down in the river to pray

I went down in the river to pray
Studyin' about that good ol' way
And who shall wear the robe and crown?
Good Lord, show me the way

Everything You're Not Supposed To Be

( Melanie Laurent feat. Damien Rice )

I walk away from you
For the first time
Strong

And I did my best
To see it through
Now I'm watching you
Just thinking
I'm wrong

But I only wanted you to know
That I never wanted you to go

I know I was everything
You're not supposed to be
To someone that you love

I know I was everything
You're not supposed to be
To someone that you love

I know I was everything
You're not supposed to be
To someone that you love
That you love, that you love

You walk away from me
For the first time
Sure

And you did your best
But you don't see
How free
It feels
Without you and me

I only wanted you to know
That I never wanted you to go

I know I was everything
You're not supposed to be
To someone that you love

I know I was everything
You're not supposed to be
To someone that you love

I know I was everything
You're not supposed to be
To someone that you love
That you love, that you love

And I crash and I burn
And I toss and I turn
I belong to you

You provoked and you broke
All my dreams and my hope
And I'm sitting still

I feel trapped and alone
I thank God you are gone.
I sleep better now

I feel free and I see
What you are without me
I'm alive again

I only wanted you to know
That I never wanted you to go

I know I was everything
You're not supposed to be
To someone that you love

I know I was everything
You're not supposed to be
To someone that you love

I know I was everything
You're not supposed to be
To someone that you love
That you love, that you love
That you love...

Face

How I know
Go bow end send mend bend pretend
Shut your face again
Bleed seed need read breath on my knees
How I choose to breath
Lie cry learn grow slow fall stall
How I build my wall
Hate wait bait kiss or taste the place
And make weather in my face

The only one that you know
I wanna live, wanna die, wanna grow old with you
I wanna be the only one that you know
'Cause I adore you
I do yeah

How I choose bruise loose win sin bin tease please
Better have her on her knees

How I choose to scream
Shout wake sleep I need to touch her deep

Fate wait weight kiss or taste the place
And make weather in my face

The only one that you know
I wanna live, wanna die, wanna grow old with you
I wanna be the only one that you know
'Cause I adore you

Adore you, adore you, adore you...
Adore you, adore you, adore you...
Adore you, adore you, adore you...
Adore you, adore you, adore you...

Fool

If you leave me now
It's not that I can't take it
It's just that somehow
I think you'd break it
So much beyond repair
Like pulling out my hair
And poisoning the roots
A gun that never shoots again
And if you leave me now
And take him deep within your throne
Like you did when you were coming home
And you did again in Mexico
And again before you go
And I believed your lies, your lies, your lies

So turn and walk away
I've overspoken
Said all that I can say
I know that I can kneel
And I could cry
And I know that I could show you how I died
But what good would it do?
Give the world another fool
If you're gonna stay
Don't just say it
Stay, really stay
I don't want any more goodbyes
Any more disguise
No more tossing coins
Or him between your loins
And if you're gonna stay
I'll place you high upon a hill
And with my hands
I'll build a tower in your name
And you will do the same
Won't you my love?
Won't you my love?
Won't you my love?

Or just turn and walk away
I've overspoken
Said all that I can say
I know that I can kneel
And kiss your feet
Walk ahead and clear the street
So you don't have to meet
But what good would it do
Give the world another fool

Turn and walk away
I've overspoken
Now what more can I say?
I know that I can kneel
And I can cry
I know, I know
That I can show you how I died
Now what good would it do
Give the world another fool
Just sitting on this stool
I'm close to giving up on you

Front Door

What is it that happens to me when you're around?
I try to bring some love
I'm just bringing it down
What is it that happens to me when you're around?

What is it that happens to me when you're around?
I try to say something
And nothing comes out
What is it that happens to me when you're around?

A broken voice
In a broken door
A broken choice
That I broke some more
A broken me
Am I breaking you?
And if i push you too hard
I push you right through

What is it that happens to me when you're around?
You call to my door
But I don't come out
What is it that happens to me when you're around?

What is it that happens to me when you're around?
It seems like my words tremble
Like a creaking ground
What is it that happens to me when you're around?

A broken voice
In a broken door
A broken choice
That I broke some more
A broken me
Am I breaking you?
And if i push you too hard
I push you right through

A broken voice
In a broken door
A broken choice
That I broke some more
A broken me
Am I breaking you?
And if i push you too hard
I push you right through

What is it that happens to me when you're around?
What is it that happens to me when you're around?

Get The Party Started

( Pink Cover )

I'm comin' up so you better get this party started
I'm comin' up so you better get this party started

Get this party started on a Saturday night
Everybody's waitin' for me to arrive
Sendin' out the message to all of my friends
We'll be lookin' flashy in my Mercedes Benz
I got lotsa style, got my gold diamond rings
I can go for miles if you know what I mean

I'm comin' up so you better get this party started
I'm comin' up so you better get this party started
I'm...

Makin' my connection as I enter the room
Everybody's chillin' as I set up the groove
Pumpin' up the volume with this brand new beat
Everybody's dancin' and their dancin' for me
I'm your operator, you can call anytime
I'll be your connection to the party line

I'm comin' up so you better get this party started
I'm comin' up so you better get this party started, started, started
I'm comin' up so you better.. you better...

Glory box
 
( Portishead Cover / Live )

I'm so tired of playing
Playing with this bow and arrow
Gonna give my heart away
Leave it to the other girls to play
For I've been a temptress too long

Give me a reason to love you
Give me a reason to be
A woman
I just wanna be a woman

 From this time, unchained
We're all looking at a different picture
Through this new frame of mind
A thousand flowers could bloom
Move over, and give us some room

Give me a reason to love you
Give me a reason to love you...

Groovin'

What am I gonna do
About you girl?
You don't seem to believe me when I say
That you are the one that's got me feeling this way
You've got me groovin', yeah
You've got me groovin'
You've got me groovin', groovin', groovin', groovin', groovin', groovin', groovin'...

Oh, but please don't believe it
If you don't think I am real (?)
I should know just how I feel
Please believe me when I say
You are the one that's got me feeling this way
Yeah, you are the one that's got me feeling this way

And it ain't no stupid (?)
Memory of mine (?)
Please forgive me if I've been out of line
It's you girl, you've got me groovin
You've got me groovin', yeah
You've got me groovin'
You've got me groovin', groovin', groovin', groovin', groovin', groovin', groovin'...
You've got me groovin', groovin', groovin', groovin', groovin', groovin', groovin'...

Hallelujah

( Leonard Cohen )

I heard there was a secret chord
That david played and it pleased the lord
But you don't really care for music, do you
Well it goes like this the fourth, the fifth
The minor fall and the major lift
The baffled king composing hallelujah

Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah ....

Well your faith was strong but you needed proof
You saw her bathing on the roof
Her beauty and the moonlight overthrew you
She tied you to her kitchen chair
She broke your throne and she cut your hair
And from your lips she drew the hallelujah

Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah .... .

Baby i've been here before
I've seen this room and i've walked this floor
I used to live alone before i knew you
I've seen your flag on the marble arch
But love is not a victory march
It's a cold and it's a broken hallelujah

Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah ....

Well there was a time when you let me know
What's really going on below
But now you never show that to me do you
But remember when i moved in you
And the holy dove was moving too
And every breath we drew was hallelujah

Well, maybe there's a god above
But all i've ever learned from love
Was how to shoot somebody who outdrew you
It's not a cry that you hear at night
It's not somebody who's seen the light
It's a cold and it's a broken hallelujah

Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah ....

Happy Christmas (War is Over)

( John Lennon / It's All Bells" Charity CD 2002)

And so this is Christmas
And what have you done?
Another year over
A new one just begun

And so this is Christmas
I hope you have fun
The near and the dear ones
The old and the young

And a very merry Christmas
And a happy New Year
Let's hope it's a good one
Without any fear

And so this is Christmas
For weak and for strong
For rich and for poor ones
The road is so long

And so Happy Christmas
For black and for white
The yellow and red ones
Let's stop all the fight

And a very merry Christmas
And a happy New Year
Let's hope it's a good one
Without any fear

And so this is Christmas
And what have you done?

I Just Can't Help Believin'

( Elvis Presley cover )

I just can't help believin'
When she smiles up soft and gentle
With a trace of misty morning
And the promise of tomorrow in her eyes

I just can't help believin'
When she's lying close beside me
And my heart beats with the rhythm of her size
This time the girl is gonna stay
This time the girl is gonna stay
For more than just a day

Oh, I just can't help believin'
When she slips her hand in my hand
And it feels so small and helpless
As my fingers fold around it like a glove

I just can't help believin'
When she's whispering her magic
And her tears are shining honey sweet with love
This time the girl is gonna stay
This time the girl is gonna stay
For more than just a day

Paraparapa…

I just can't help...

*** Thanx a lot to Jose for this one ***

Is that it my friend

Is that it my friend
Come to the end
Only two days now
You've let us descend
To the prince of the desert
The prince in the sand
Did he ask for your love
Did he ask for your hand

Is that it my friend
The end of it all
Did you wait til I break
Did you wait til I fall
I was lost in your river
Now I come to a dam
To question the boy
To question the man

And I long to be with you
And I long to be free
And I long to be with you
And I long to be free
Not for my jealousy

Is that it my friend
Just say good night
Well I hope you sleep well
And I hope you sleep tight
I was lost in your river
Now I come to a dam
To question the boy
To question the man

And I long to be with you
And I long to be free
And I long to be with you
Not for my...

Well I'm alright
Now
Yes I'm all I'm alright
Now
Yes I'm all alright
Now, yeah
Well I'm all alright
Now
Now

I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For

( U2 Cover / Live )

I have climbed the highest mountains
I have run through the fields
Only to be with you
Only to be with you

I have run
I have crawled
I have scaled these city walls
These city walls
Only to be with you

But I still haven't found
What I'm looking for
I still haven't found
What I'm looking for

I have kissed honey lips
Felt the healing in her fingertips
It burned like fire
This burning desire

And I have run
I have crawled
I have scaled
I have, I have, I have
I have to be with you
To be with you
Only to be with you
To be with you

But I still, still haven't found just what I'm looking for
But I still haven't found what I'm looking for

Star, star teach me how to shine, shine
Teach me so I know what's going on in your mind
'Cause I don't understand these people
Who say the hill's too steep
Well, they talk and talk forever
But they just never climb

I said I want you to want me
And I want you to need me
Everybody wants to feel the need sometimes
(I want you to need me)
Teach me how to shine
(I'll teach you)
Teach me how
Teach me how to shine
Teach me so I know what's going on in your mind
Teach me how to shine
(I'll teach you)

I can't take my eyes off you
Somehow I can't take my eyes off you
I can't take my eyes off you
Just can't take my eyes off you
I can't take my eyes off of you
I can't take my eyes
my eyes
my eyes
'Til I get a knife and cut you out

Insane

Should I speak?
Should I bother shaking hands?
Am I weak If I leave it as it stands?
I've submerged
And I've surfaced with the blame
I guess I'm no good
I guess I'm insane

Should I go
If she calls out my name?
And if she bleeds
Should I wipe up the stain?
And if I'm low
Can I drown in this rain?
I guess I'm no good
I guess I'm insane

And I hate when you say
That I never fight for you
Sometimes you breathe
All over my skin
And you always end up
Closer than close
That's where I give in

Should I confess
The actions of a hand
In my mind
I'll betray you once again
Why should I climb?
What is there to gain?
This is no good
This is insane

And I hate when you say
That I never fight for you
Sometimes you breathe
All over my skin
And you always end up
Closer than close
That's whenre I give in

You're taking
You're taking
You're taking me down
You're taking
You're taking
You're taking me down
And you always end up
Closer than close
That's where I give in
That's where I give in
That's where I give in

*** Thanx a lot to Jose for this one ***

It didn't take you long babe

Well, it didn't take you long.
Did it, babe?
To learn to sing my song
And get yourself laid.
No, it didn't take you long.
Did it, babe?
The moment i was gone
You're the master of the slaves.
And it didn't take me long
To realize.
All of your songs
Were just lies, lies, lies.
And it didn't take me long.
Did it, babe?
I want you to find a new boy
Whose face you could shave.

Ok, I'm sorry.
I'm just a little angry with you.
'Cause it dug like a quarry
When you were angry with me.
And maybe it's not right?
Yeah, but hell with it!
I'm angry with you.
Is there not enough light?
Or do you just not see?
What you do
Is what you hated in me?
Though i was never free enough to.

Yeah, well, it didn't take you long.
Did it babe?
I'm all alone
In the last step of the race.
Yeah, and it didn't take you long.
Did it, babe?
The moment i was gone
You're in the masters' parade.
And it didn't take you long
To tell your friends.
How I'd done you wrong
And just left you in the end?
Yeah, but it didn't take you long.
Did it, babe?
To find a new boy
Whose dick you could crave.

Ok, I'm sorry.
I'm just a little angry with you.
'Cause it dug like a quarry
When you were angry with me.
And maybe it's not right?
Yeah, but hell with it!
I'm angry with you.
Is there not enough light?
Or do you just not see?
What you do
Is what you hated in me?
Though i was never free enough to.

It was about five years ago
It's amazing how you hold on...

Lay Me Down

( The Frames cover / Live )

I will write you letters that
Explain the way I'm thinking now
I, I will return to you
What I have taken long before
I, I will return again
When it gets dark and day is done

And lay me down
In the hallowed ground
Down by your side I will stay
So lay me down

And if you wanna stay with me
Then let me know before it's light
I, I will recoil myself
Into the black and darkest night

And lay me down
In the hallowed ground
Where my father waits I will stay
So lay me down

And lay me down
In the hallowed ground
Down by your side I will stay
So lay me down

Lazy Situation

We kill one another for love
Does it have to, does it have to be
That we kill one another of love?
A year after, a year after
We met up by the powers above
If you want to you can wear my glove
And if you like you, and you like me
We've all got eyes but we cannot see

It's a lazy situation
It's a crooked, ended room
It's a mask of information
'Cause he wants her, and she wants me
And we wanna be with the one that we need
And he wants her, and she wants me
And we all wanna be with the one that we need
And he wants what she wants
And I wanna be with the one who thinks I'm her brother

And we kill one another for love
And we grace it so gradually
And we kill one another for love
And we make it, yeah, we make it bleed
And I see we're all looking above
Are we crazy?
What are we thinking of?
And this ain't you
And this ain't me
We all got hands
But we cannot feel

It's a lazy situation
It's a crooked, ended room
It's a mask of information
'Cause he wants her, and she wants me
And we wanna be with the one that we need
And he wants her, and she wants me
And we all wanna be with the one that we need
And he wants what she wants
And I wanna be with the one who thinks I'm her brother
Thinks I'm her brother...

Little Sister

( Juniper cover )

There's another kind of red under the bed
We've all been branded
Barcode on my head
We can all go beep as we checkout

Your flexible friend is but a spy
Your movement's mapped
Your drink link dries
And I fail to see what this card is so smart

Little sister has been watching you
Little sister has been watching you
Little sister has been watching you
Little sister

So you want to walk the earth
You know she flies
She's mastered the art
Of truth and lies
To her you'll never be more than just a number, a number, a number

And there's another kind of red under the bed
We've all been branded
We can all be read
Or is it all in my head
Or is it all in my head

Little sister has been watching you
Little sister has been watching you
Little sister has been watching you
Little sister has been

Little sister has been watching you
Little sister has been watching you
Little sister has been watching you
Little sister

Little sister has been watching you
Little sister has been watching you
Little sister has been watching you
Little sister

Lonelily

I gave me away
I could have knocked off the evening
But a lonelily landed my wants in her hands
In a way I felt you were leaving me
I was sure I wouldn't find you at home
And you let me down
Could have knocked off the evening
But you lonelily let him push under your bone
You let me down
It's no use deceiving
Neither of us wanna be alone

You're coming home (x 4)

I gave me away
I could have knocked off the evening
But I was lonelily looking for someone to hold
In a way I lost all I believed in
And I never found myself so low
And you let me down
You could've called if you'd needed
But you lonelily got yourself locked instead
And you let me down
It's one thing being cheated
But you took him all the way through your bed

And now you're coming home
And I'm trying to forgive
You're coming home
And I'm trying to forget
You're coming
And I'm trying to move on
You're coming home
And you haven't called yet

You're coming home
And I'm trying to forgive
You're coming home
I'm just trying to forget
You're coming
I'm trying to move on
You're coming home
But you haven't called
You're coming home

You're coming home (x4)

I gave me away
I could have knocked off the evening
But I lonelily loomed her into my bone
You let me down
There's no use deceiving
Neither of us wanna be alone

Lonely Soldier

Lonely soldier go home
Lonely but never alone
Good eyes see nothin' to shoot
Good feet feel good givin' up good boots

Ask your father how do you fall
Ask your father how do you fall
Like a leaf sittin' on the ground
Good for nothin' except kickin' around

She died with her hand stretched out
She died with a hungry mouth
She died with a mind full of doubt
And thoughts of weakening

So may your river never dry
May your mouth never lie
And may you be satisfied to never know why
Sometimes someone just wants to die

Where'd you get those cuts in your hand?
I thought I told you about playin' in the sand
There's always someone careless with glass
there's always questions you don't want to ask

She died with her hands stretched out
She died with a hungry mouth
She died with a mind full of doubt
And thoughts of weakening

May your river never dry
May your mouth never lie
And may you be satisfied to never know why
Sometimes someone just wants to die

So lonely soldier go home
Lonely but never alone
Good eyes see nothin' to shoot
Good feet feel good givin' up good boots

Love Hurts

( The Everly Brothers Cover / Live )

Love hurts, love scars
Love wounds, and marks
Any heart, not tough
Or strong, enough
To take a lot of pain
Take a lot of pain
Love is like a cloud
Holds a lot of rain
Love hurts
Hmm love hurts

I'm young, I know
But even so
I know a thing, or two
I learned, from you
I really learned a lot
Really learned a lot
Love is like a flame
It burns you when it's hot
Love hurts
Hmm love hurts

Some fools think of happiness
Blissfulness, togetherness
Some fools fool themselves I guess
They're not foolin' me

I know it isn't true
I know it isn't true
Love is just a lie
Made to make you blue
Love hurts
Hmm love hurts
Hmm love hurts
Oh love hurts

Mercedes Benz

( Janis Joplin cover / Vocals: Juniper / Live at The Lobby, Cork 2002 )

Oh Lord, won't you buy me a Mercedes Benz
My friends all drive Porsches, I must make amends
Worked hard all my lifetime, no help from my friends
So Lord, won't you buy me a Mercedes Benz

Oh Lord, won't you buy me a color TV
Dialing For Dollars is waiting to find me
I wait for delivery each day until three
So oh Lord, won't you buy me a color TV

Oh Lord, won't you buy me a night on the town
I'm counting on you, Lord, please don't let me down
So, prove that you love me and buy the next round
Oh Lord, won't you buy me a night on the town

Oh Lord, won't you buy me a Mercedes Benz
My friends all drive Porsches, I must make amends
Worked hard all my lifetime, no help from my friends
So oh Lord, won't you buy me a Mercedes Benz

My City Shitty

(Video footage on the Volcano EP)

The drugs are free

Branch me out
Gonna kill my city
Gonna kill my city
Gonna kill me

Still my stop
Gonna stick your city
Gonna stick your city
Gonna stick me

Be my doll
With the girls so pretty
With the girls so pretty
I just can't

This is my stop
Where the air is shitty
Where the air is shitty
And the drugs are free

The drugs are free

One

( U2 Cover / Achtung Baby Covers LP )

Is it getting better
Do I feel the same
Will it make it easier on me now
I've got someone to blame
You say

One love
One life
When it's one need
In the night

One love
We get to share it
Leaves me, baby, if I
Don't care for it

Did I disappoint you
I have a bad taste in my mouth
I act like I never had love
And I want you to go without

Well it's too late
Tonight
To drag the past out into the light
We're one but we're not the same
We get to
Carry each other
Carry each other
One

Have I come here for forgiveness
Have I come to raise the dead
Have I come here to play Jesus
To the lepers in my head

Did I ask too much
More than a lot
I gave you nothing
Now it's all I've got
We're one but we're not the same
Though we hurt each other
Then we do it again
You say
Love is a temple
Love a higher law
Love is a temple
Love a higher law
I asked you to enter
And then I made you crawl
And you can't keep holding on
To what I've got
When all I've got is hurt

One love
One blood
One life
I've got to do what I should
One life
With each other
Sisters, brothers

One life
But we're not the same
We get to
Carry each other
Carry each other
One

*** Thanx a lot to Jose for this one ***

Play Dead

( Bjork Cover / Live )

 Darling stop confusing me
With your wishful thinking
Hopeful embraces
Don't you understand
I have to go through this
I belong to here where
No-one cares and no-one loves
No light no air to live in
A place called hate
The city of fear

I play dead
It stops the hurting
I play dead
And the hurting stops
It's sometimes just like sleeping
Curling up inside my private tortures
I nestle into pain
Hug suffering
Caress every ache
I play dead,
It stops the hurting

The Professor & La fille Danse

( The blower's daughter EP )

Well I don't know if I'm wrong
'Cause she's only just gone
Here's to another relationship
Bombed by my excellent breed of gamete disease
I'm sure when I'm older I'll know what that means

Cried when she should and she laughed when she could
Here's to the man with his face in the mud
And an overcast play just taken away
From the lover's in love at the centre of stage yeah

Loving is fine if you have plenty of time
For walking on stilts at the edge of your mind
Loving is good if your dick's made of wood
And the dick left inside only half understood her

What makes her come and what makes her stay
What makes the animal run, run away yeah
What makes him stall, what makes him stand
And what shakes the elephant now
And what makes a man
I don't know, I don't know, I don't know
No I don't know you anymore
No, no, no, no
Oh yeah, hey, hey, hey, hey

I don't know if I'm wrong
'Cause she's only just gone
Why the fuck is this day taking so long
I was a lover of time and once she was mine
I was a lover indeed, I was covered in weed

Cried when she should and she laughed when she could
Well closer to god is the one who's in love
And I walk away cause I can
Too many options may kill a man

Loving is fine if it's not in your mind
But I've fucked it up now, too many times yeah
Loving is good if it's not understood
Yeah, but I'm the professor
And I feel that I should know

What makes her come and what makes her stay
What makes the animal run, run away and
What makes him tick apart from him prick
And the lonelier side of the jealousy stick

I don't know, I don't know, I don't know
No I don't know, I don't know, I don't know
No I don't know, I don't know, I don't know, no, no
Hell I don't know you anymore
No, no, no, no
Oh yeah, hey, hey

Well I don't know if I'm wrong
'Cause she's only just gone
Here's to another relationship
Bombed by my excellent breed of gamete disease
I finished it off with some French wine and cheese

La fille danse
Quand elle joue avec moi
Et je pense que je l'aime des fois
Le silence, n'ose pas dis-donc
Quand on est ensemble
Mettre les mots
Sur la petite dodo

La fille danse
Quand elle joue avec moi et la pluie
Elle me manque
Pourquoi
Non, non
C'est la chanson, la nuit, le vent
L'amour, le son
De la petite Dodo

The girl dances
When she plays with me
And sometimes I think I love her
The silence dares not
When we are together
Put the words
On the little 'dodo'

The girl dances
When she plays with me and the rain
I miss her
Why
No, no
It's the song, the night, the wind
The love, The sound
Of the little Dodo

Purple haze

( Jimi Hendrix )

Purple haze all in my brain
Lately things just don't seem the same
Actin' funny, but I don't know why
'Scuse me while I kiss the sky

Purple haze all around
Don't know if I'm comin' up or down
Am I happy or in misery
What ever it is, that girl put a spell on me

Que sera sera

( Live with David Gray at Earth concert, London at Wembley Stadium )

When I was just a little boy
I asked my father, how would it be
Would I be able to play in the trees?
Cause they're cutting down forests and spreading disease
And here's what he said to me...

Que sera sera
Whatever will be will be
The future's not ours to see
Que sera sera
What will be, will be

When I grew up and fell in love
I asked my sweetheart what lies ahead
Will there be rainbows day after day
Will we become just another cliché
Having it all, yet throwing it away
Here's what my sweetheart said

Que sera sera
Whatever will be will be
The future's not ours to see
Que sera sera
What will be, will be

Now I have children of my own
They may ask their father what will we be
Will we be bitter, filled with regret
Will we be choking on our own shit
I tell them tenderly

Que sera sera...

Rule No. 2 Y-Junction

What if you don't get it like I want you to?
So roll the dice
There goes my rule number 2
So roll the dice
And don't ask why
Just keep following me
'Cause I'm following you

If she stays with you then you were right
If it's still here when she's gone
You're not wrong
Though I stand with this rain on my back
But it feels so damn good
To belong

This is what I think I need
These big fat feelings
They hurt my cheeks
So roll the dice
And there goes my rule number 2
Roll the dice
And don't ask why
Just keep eating the food

And if she stays with you
Then you were right
If it's still here when she's gone
You're not wrong
Though I stand with this rain on my back
It feels so damn good
To belong

Rule number 2
Don't be a fool
Rule number 3
Get up off your knees
Rule number 4
Open your door
Rule number 5
Keep it alive
Rule number 6
Don't be pricks
And rule nubmer 8
Don't leave it too late

Sand

You keep me in a glass jar sealed with a label
You think you know my world
Wake up young girl, you've got a lot to learn
My love, my life, my work, my time
I give them all to you
Your hand in mine
We walk, we talk in ryhme
We go the whole night through

I'm not a grain of sand
I don't care what's written in your hand
It's bound to change

Sore, bored, and I'm lost, cost, cold
Getting older
Wrap it up, rip it up now
Have it sold
I'm a grower
Any more, any more, any more, any more...
I wanna be with you
Just wanna be with you

But you tease me
And it shows in the way that you play
You think you know my love
Wake up young girl
And take a taste
Not a bite, not a bite of a life now
Can tell you never come, yeah well
My will, my mind
My lips, my lines
I've got them all over you

Your taste combined
With all the years of wasting time
I've got a hold on something new
I'm not a grain of sand
I don't care what's written in your hand
Cause it's bound to change

So I'm bored, and I'm lost, cost, cold
Getting older
Buy the book, rip it up now
Have it sold
I'm a grower
Any more, any more, any more, any more...
I wanna be with you
Just wanna be with you
I don't wanna pray for what is not right
And I don't wanna beg for what is not mine
I don't wanna rock the road between dreams and worldly things
I could charge, and I could really try
But I don't wanna be the brave one
In a senseless fight
I, I, I just wanna be here tonight

Sore, bored, and I'm lost, cost, cold
Getting older
Wrap it up, rip it up now
Have it sold

Seven Nation Army

( White Stripes cover played on Dallas, 28/11/2003 )

I'm gonna fight 'em all
A seven nation army couldn't hold me back
They're gonna rip it off
Taking their time right behind my back

And I'm talking to myself at night
Because I can't forget
Back and forth through my mind
Behind a cigarette
And the message's coming from my eyes
Says leave it alone

Don't want to hear about it
Every single one's got a story to tell
Everyone knows about it
From the Queen of England to the hounds of hell

And if I catch it coming back my way
I'm gonna serve it to you
And that ain't what you want to hear
But that's what I'll do
And the feeling coming from my bones
Says find a home

I'm going to Wichita
Far from this opera for evermore
I'm gonna work the straw
Make the sweat drip out of every pore
And I'm bleeding, and I'm bleeding, and I'm bleeding
Right before the lord
All the words are gonna bleed from me
And I will sing no more
And the stains coming from my blood
Tell me to come back home

*** Thanx a lot to Chogu for this one ***

Sex Change

Take your hand
Off me
Understand
Nothing
I need a new
Yesterday
I need to move
But you're in my way

It feels like you're walking out
Walking out

Body is breaking down
Breaking down
It feels like you're walking out
On me

Take your mind
Off me
You will find
Nothing
I need a new
Yesterday
I need to move
But you're in my way

It feels like you're walking out
Walking out
On me

Talking 'Bout A Revolution

( Tracy Chapman cover / Live )

Don't you know you're talking 'bout a revolution
It sounds like a whisper
Don't you know they're talking 'bout a revolution
It sounds like a whisper

While they're standing in the welfare lines
Crying at the doorsteps of those armies of salvation
Wasting time in unemployment lines
Sitting around waiting for a promotion

Don't you know you're talking 'bout a revolution
It sounds like a whisper

Poor people are gonna rise up
And take what's theirs
Poor people are gonna rise up
And take what's theirs

Don't you know you better run
Don't you know you better run

And finally the tables are starting to turn
Talking 'bout a revolution
And finally the tables are starting to turn
Talking 'bout a revolution oh

While they're standing in the welfare lines
Sitting at the doorways of those armies of salvation
Wasting time in unemployment lines
Sitting around waiting for a promotion

Don't you know you're talking 'bout a revolution
It sounds like a whisper

And finally the tables are starting to turn
Talking 'bout a revolution
Finally the tables are starting to turn
Talking 'bout a revolution oh no
Talking 'bout a revolution oh no
Talking 'bout a revolution oh no
Oh no

*** Thanx a lot to Jose for this one ***

The Connoisseur of Great Excuse

( Gasoline Rainbows 'Charity CD' )

Of all the foolish things to do
I became a connoisseur of great excuse
And my pessimistic past the blame
Will never make this go away

Of all the foolish things I've said
That keep me sleepy almost dead
I'm sorry if I've let you down
My eyes were closed, they're open now

I'm waking up
I am waking up
I am waking up
I am wake

And this has all been said before
I've listened but then I ignored
My ears grew deaf, my head gave up
The junkie knows not when to stop

Of all the foolish alibis
The constipated push for why
I've had a blanket pulled over my eyes
Oh hush, now baby, don't you cry

I'm waking up
I am waking up
I am waking up
I am wake

I'm coming
I'm waking up
I'm ready
I'm waking up
I am wake

Then Go

Among the afflictions
With which I've been marked
I'm not so prententious
And not quite so dark
I get the feeling you're bored with me
And not through habit or frequency
Did your mother have you easily?
And if there's someplace else you'd rather be
Then go, then go
Then go, then go

Among the intentions
Which have been sought
Numbered and labeled
But none of them bought
I get the feeling you're testing me
You're saturated in urgency
You stick your probe in further
But you're still not pleased
And if there's someplace else you'd rather be
Then go, then go
Then go, then go

Then go, then go
Then go, then go

I would've lied for you
I would've cried for you
I crossed the line for you
I would've died for you...

The Power Of Orange Knickers

( Tori Amos Featuring Damien Rice )

The power of orange knickers
The power of orange knickers
The power of orange knickers
Under my petty coat
The power of listening to what
You don't want me to know

Can somebody tell me now who is this terrorist
Those girls that smile kindly then rip your life to pieces?
Can somebody tell me nwo am I alone with this
This little pill in my hand and with this secret kiss
Am I alone in this...

A matter of complication
When you become a twist
For their latest drink
As they're transitioning

Can somebody tell me now who is this terrorist
This little pill in my hand that keeps the pain laughin'
Can somebody tell me now a way out of this -
That sacred pipe of red stone could blow me out of this kiss
Am I alone in this...

Shame shame time to leave me now
Shame shame you've had your fun
Shame shame for letting me think that I would be the one

Can somebody tell me now who is this terrorist
This little pill in my hand or this secret kiss
Am I alone in this kiss
Am I alone in this kiss


Toffee Pop

Huge eyes
Know I'm missing
So I close mine
When I'm kissing
Lollipop licking
With Lola
Sticking like toffee to my teeth
Wait, watch, gravitate
Grap hold of insulate
Wait, watch, it's too late
It's over now
All the way

I've got so much beauty around me I can't move
I've got so much beauty around me I can't lose
I've got so much beauty around me I can't choose
I've got so much beauty around me, around you

Toffee pop
So sticky
In the heat
Lola gets angry
Over meat
And who did I (who did i)
Who did I (who did i)
Push out
And who did I (who did i)
Who did I (who did i)
Hear shout

Wait, watch, gravitate
Grap hold of, insulate
Wait, watch, it's too late
It's too late for now
All the way

I've got so much beauty around me I can't move
I've got so much beauty around me I can't lose
I've got so much beauty around me I can't choose
I've got so much beauty around me, around you

Tongue

This one's for you
This one's for me
This one's for you
What must I be?
I've got a nervous feeling, over you
I got someone to love me, oh so true

I need to feel hope
I need to feel young again
I need to be bold
Start losing my tongue again
They can laugh as I cry
They can cut 'til I bleed
I ain't losing
'Cause this one's for me

This one's for you
This one's for me
This one's for you
Tell me what the fuck must I be for you
I've got a nervous feeling over you
I've got someone to love me, oh so true

But I need to feel hope
And I need to feel young again
And I need to be bold
Start using my tongue again
They can laugh as I cry
They can cut 'til I bleed
I ain't losing
'Cause this one's for me

Truth is Not Enough

( Live 2014 )

If I counted the mistakes
The things i can't erase
The past that lasts like honey in a grave

And if i stitched up into art
All the things i've torn apart
The consequence of love that misbehaved

Would all of this make sense
'Cause you're still here
I'm rougher on my friends
That's how it is

Tell me what can I do for you
To make it easier to deal with me
I only wanted to be true
And the truth is often tough

If I counted all the times
I've upped and changed my mind
And left you with a rod without a line
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
And if I pulled away too soon
Pulled the wings from your cocoon
Left you feeling small and undesired

Don't know if this makes sense
You're still here
I'm offerring my defence

But tell me what can I do for you
To make it easier to deal with me
I only wanted to be true
And the truth is often tough

Tell me what can I do for you
To make it easier to deal with me
I only wanted to be true
And the truth is not enough

If the truth is not enough
Then I can maker it easier on you
I can make it easier on you if you want

So tell me what can I do for you
If the truth is not enough

Uncomfortable

( Melanie Laurent feat. Damien Rice )

Et tu reviens
Reprendre ta place
Je connais ce regard
Je connais ce regard
Et tu me dis que tu sais tout
Que tu regrettes, le temps sans nous

You fall on me
Like firewood
Just like you should
Just like you should
But it's too late
I'm no longer full
Just uncomfortable
Uncomfortable

It's just like me
Mais c'est trop tard
To let you down
Et c'est sans moi
To walk away
Je te regarde
To fool around
Vouloir ma main
It's just like you
Mais c'est sans moi
To cry like this
Tu l'as perdue
Into the cracks
Au moins cent fois

Unplayed Piano

Come and see me,
See me to sleep,
Come and free me,
Or hold me if I need to weep,
Maybe it's not the season
Or maybe it's not the year
Maybe there's no other reason
Why i'm locked up inside
Just cause they wanna hide me
The moon goes bright
The darker they make my night.

Unplayed pianos
Are often by our window
In a room where nobody come-goes
She sits along with her silent song,
Somebody bring her home.

Unplayed piano
(unplayed piano...)
Still holds a tune
(still holds a tune)
Lock on years
(years pass by)
In stale, stale room
(in the change of the moon)
Maybe it's not that easy
Or maybe it's not that hard
(stale, stale room...)
Maybe they could release me
(stale, stale room...)
Let the peolpe decide
I've got nothing to hide
I don't know if it's wrong,
So why bother here so low?

Unplayed pianos
Are often by our window
In a room where nobody come-goes
She sits along with her silent song,
Somebody bring her home.

Unplayed pianos
Are often by our window
In a room where nobody come-goes
She sits along with her silent song,
Somebody bring her home.

Unplayed piano
(play her tune)
Still holds a tune
(bring her home...)
Years pass by
In the change of the moon

Weatherman

It's a beautiful night for me to be here
With my empty head
I should have stayed at home
And watched the weather
It's a wonderful night buts it's a shame
Because there is an empty bed
I should have stayed at home
'Til I got better
And nothing's changing
The record's scraping round and round and round
And nothing's changing
The people drive their cars to town

I ask the weatherman to sent a cloud my way
I ask the weatherman by Monday
I ask the weatherman to sent a cloud my way
I ask the weatherman, yeah

It's a beautiful night for me to be here
Now our love is dead
I should have stayed at home
And watched the weather
Well it's a wonderful night
But this is it now
I've left your head
I should have stayed at home
'Til I got better
And nothing's changing
The record's scraping round and round and round
And nothing's changing
The people drive their cars to town
The people drive their cars
These people drive me

I ask the weatherman to sent a cloud my way
I ask the weatherman by Monday
I ask the weatherman to sent a cloud my way
I ask the weatherman, yeah

Nothing's changing
The record's scraping round and round and round
Nothing's changing
The people drive their cars
These people drive me

I ask the weatherman to sent a cloud my way
I ask the weatherman by Monday
I ask the weatherman to sent a cloud my way
I ask the weatherman by Monday
I ask the weatherman to sent a cloud my way
I ask the weatherman by Monday
The weatherman

What Do You Know About Love?

(Live at the Lobby, Cork, 03-11-02 )

What do you know about love
Starts with a smile
Moves oceans
Lasts for awhile
She turns a corner
And you lose your mind
And you think how unkind, how unkind

What do you know about love
What's written in your book
The smallest distraction
And you have to look
She's in your water
And you're in your head
Somewhere else

What do you know about love
Except that you kill
The deeper you cut it
The more it will spill
You flood her with water
When she shows her flame
And you expect her to get up
And feel the same

What do you know about love
Except that you don't
She gets herself ready
When she will I won't
You driver her away
And you crash to your knees
She seems happier without me
She seems happier without me

What do you know about love
Starts with a smile
Moves over mountains
Falls like a child
Cries like a baby
At the sight of its blood
But if only we understood

What do you know about love
What's written in your book
When she adores you
It's you that gets stuck
It's not the attraction
And the beauty is no blame
It's the dealing with your shame

What do you know about love
Except that you kill
You beg for forgiveness
For the freeness of your will
You've broken the alter
Where her body is lain
And you question
Wherefore comes this pain

What do you know about love
Except that you don't
The heavens have opened
And you say they won't
So you rip out your heart
And you put it to freeze
And she seems happier without me
She seems happier without me
She seems happier, happier
Without me

What do you know about love
What do you know about love
What do you know about love

What this night is for

( Live )

She's got a place within the woods
Where she swings near the house in the trees
She's got a way with animals
And invites me along to get free
There's an army of men who'd shoot for her
Even goddesses watch when she moves
Friends get us high and something opens up the sky
And it fills us with nothing to lose

Oh and we've never been in this place before
Not as it is right now, right now
And we may never know what this night is for
So for now, we'll just sit around

He's got a way of lingering
Like a ghost that just won't go away
He's got a place within the wind
Oh he's around, but I know that he won't stay
There's an army of stars that'd crash the night
They were burnin' but still it was cold
So we dare the Gods to come and sit and talk with us
We were bruised, we were spared, we were bold

Oh and we've never been in this place before
No, not as it is right now, right now
And we may never know what this night is for
So for now, we'll all just sit around
Yeah, for now, we'll just sit around

Cos we've never been in this place before
No, not as it is right now, right now
And we may never know what this life and long living is for
So for now we'll jump.

When a man loves a woman

( Percy Sledge Cover / Live in Memphis )

When a man loves a woman
Can't keep his mind on nothing else
He'll trade the world
For the good thing he's found
If she's bad he can't see it
She can do no wrong
Turn his back on his best friend
If he put her down

When a man loves a woman
Down deep in his soul
She can bring him such misery
If she plays him for a fool
He's the last one to know
Lovin' eyes can't ever see

Well, this man loves a woman
I gave you everything I had
Tryin' to hold on to your precious love
Baby, please don't treat me bad

When a man loves a woman
Down deep in his soul
She can bring him such misery
If she plays him for a fool
He's the last one to know
Lovin' eyes can't ever see

When a man loves a woman

When doves cry

( Prince Cover / Live )

Dig if you will the picture
Of you and I engaged in a kiss
The sweat of your body covers me
Can you my darling
Can you picture this

Dream if you can a courtyard
An ocean of violets in bloom
Animals strike curious poses
They feel the heat
The heat between me and you

Touch if you will my stomach
Feel how it trembles inside
You've got the butterflies all tied up
Don't make me chase you
Even doves have pride

How can you just leave me standing?
Alone in a world so cold (World so cold)
Maybe I'm just too demanding
Maybe I'm just like my father too bold
Maybe you're just like my mother
She's never satisfied (She's never satisfied)
Why do we scream at each other?
This is what it sounds like
When doves cry

Don't cry, don't cry, don't cry...
When the doves cry

Woman like a man

Wooden Horse

Don't ask me what I think of you
I spill my mind
Don't try and ask me what I am
I am mine
So don't ask me what I think of you
'Til I change my mind
You don't understand a thing I do
That brings stain to my eye
I keep sticking my finger in
I keep stamping it down

'Cause you build a thousand walls
All you need is nine
Your rode her like a wooden horse
A hundred, a hundred times

So don't ask me what I think of you
'Cause I'm not your kind
Write down all those little things I do wrong
That brings a stain to my eye
I keep sticking my finger in
I keep stamping it down

'Cause you build a thousand walls
All you need is nine
Your rode her like a wooden horse
A hundred, a hundred, a hundred times
You're not listening
I'm talking
If you don't wanna be here
Start walking
I'd eat your head
If I'm hungry
I'm hungry
I am...

'Cause you build a thousand walls
All you need is nine
Your rode her like a wooden horse
A thousand, and a hundred, and a hundred...
'Cause you build a thousand walls
All you need is nine
Your rode her like a wooden horse
A hundred, a hundred, a hundred times
You build a thousand walls
All you need is, all you need is
Your rode her like a wooden horse
A hundred, a hundred times

Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots

( The flaming lips cover / Live )

Her name is Yoshimi
She's a black belt in karate
She's working for the city
She has to discipline her body
'Cause she knows that
It's demanding
To defeat those evil machines
I know she can beat them

Oh Yoshimi, they don't believe me
But you won't let those robots defeat me
Yoshimi, they don't believe me
But you won't let those robots eat me

Those evil-natured robots
They're programmed to destroy us
She's gotta be strong to fight them
So she's taking lots of

'Cause she knows that
It'd be tragic
If those evil robots win
I know she can beat them

Oh Yoshimi, they don't believe me
But you won't let those robots defeat me
Yoshimi, they don't believe me
But you won't let those robots eat me

Your Ghost

( Kristin Hersh cover / Vocals : Juniper )

If I walk down this hallway
Tonight, it's too quiet
So I pad through the dark
And call you on the phone
Push your old numbers
And let your house ring
Till I wake your ghost

Let him walk down your hallway
It's too quiet
Slide down your receiver
Sprint across the wire
Follow my number
Slide into my hand

It's the blaze across my nightgown
It's the phone's ring
I think last night
You were driving circles around me
I think last night
You were driving circles around me
I think last night
You were driving circles around me

I can't drink this coffee
Till I put you in my closet
Let him shoot me down
Let him call me off
I take it from his whisper
You're not that tough

It's the blaze across my nightgown
It's the phone's ring
You were in my dream
You were driving circles around me
You were in my dream
You were driving circles around me
You were in my dream
You were driving circles around me
I think last night
You were driving circles around me
I think last night
You were driving circles around me

*** Thanx a lot to Jose for this one ***

You Shouldn't Be Here

( Live 2007 )

You shouldn't be here
I feel awkward
And good
To be near you
Watch you rip through
Paper wool

Time may stall
Oh…
And I may be late
I want it now
But I guess I can wait

You buy a bicycle
I hear you coming over for food
Feed my appetite
With a mouthful of you

Time may stall
Oh…
And I may be late
I want it now
But I guess I can wait

La la la la
But I guess I can wait

La la la la
But I guess I can wai

You shouldn't be here
I feel awkward
